      African American Women on Tour
      To Host 2002 Conference in Philadelphia, 10/11-10/13/02

      Register by 9/15/02 & Save $30

      Now celebrating its 12th season of touching the hearts of Black women
      worldwide, African American Women on Tour, the preeminent empower-
      ment conference for Black women, will take place October 11 - 13 in
      Philadelphia, PA at the King of Prussia Holiday Inn. This year's event
      is sponsored by Procter & Gamble and presented by Merck, and will
      feature best-selling author and cultural critic, bell hooks with the
      release of her new book, "Communion: The Female Search for Love,"
      on Friday, Oct. 11; actress Vanessa Bell Calloway, who keynotes on
      Saturday, Oct. 12; and the Reverent June Juliet Gatlin, "the woman of
      prophetic vision, inspiration and song," who keynotes at the closing
      luncheon on Sunday, Oct. 13.

      Other conference highlights & features include:

      ++ Performances by spoken word artists: Iya Isoke from Harrisburg,
      PA during Friday’s opening session; and In The Company of Poets,
      Philadelphia’s first female spoken word ensemble, who will perform
      on Saturday, Oct. 12.

      ++ This 3-day "reunion of sisters" offers a variety of powerful work-
      shops, keynote presentations and forums, as well as Rites of
      Passage programs for boys and girls, co-hosted by Black Family

      ++ Back by popular demand is the Women's Wellness Forum,
      presented by Merck & Co., Inc. and co-sponsored by Abbott Labs
      and Agouron Pharmaceuticals.  Facilitated by Sara Lomax-Reese,
      the publisher of newly released The State of Black Health Resource
      Guide, the forum addresses pro-active health and lifestyle choices
      and offers attendees the opportunity to dialogue with physicians
      and holistic practitioners, including Queen Afua, author of "Sacred
      Woman: A Guide to Healing the Feminine Body, Mind and Spirit."

      ++ AAWOT also features the popular "Sisterfriends Forever Pajama
      Party," hosted by Pizza Hut, where conference attendees, dressed
      in their "jammies" and teddy bear slippers, bond and dance until their
      hearts are content.

      ++ African American Women on Tour will again sponsor its gently-
      worn career clothing drive, Sojourner's Closet, and will donate clothing
      to local women's shelters in Philadelphia.

      ++ Recognizing the need to increase awareness of the prevalence of
      abuse and violence against Black women and girls, AAWOT will
      continue its communal Healing Circles, presented by KLEENEX
      Facial Tissue, and facilitated by Queen Mutima Imani.

      ++ Black Issues Book Review will host "Prose with a Purpose: A
      Writer's Workshop," facilitated by Stephanie Stokes Oliver, author
      of "Daily Cornbread: 365 Secrets for a Healthy Mind, Body and Spirit."

      ++ FleetBoston Financial will present a workshop designed to
      strengthen women's understanding of the significance of building a
      solid banking relationship and taking the necessary steps to gain
      financial stability. Michelle Taylor-Jones, director of emerging
      markets at Fleet will present this session, entitled "Women and
      Money: Owning Your Economic Power."

      ++ Nordstrom's will host a fashion trends presentation at its King
      of Prussia store as part of the conference.
